Worth every penny, even though it's a lot of them

03/23/2012As the title says, it may take a lot of pennies but is worth everyone one of them. Most classes cost at least same as this software, usually more. I have taken several language classes for multiple languages, but this beat them all. I would buy this again and I would easily pay tripple for it! I got in about 1-2 months what a year in regular college level courses gave me. It's so easy. There is no huge vocab bank to learn. It's simply having a conversation or playing a game or two. It doesn't even feel like learning. After a week or two, you will notice that you understand Japanese, very basic at this point of course, and you won't remember learning it. I use the cds in my car and the programs for my iphone at the gym on the tredmill. I use the computer software about 30 minutes a day when I am waiting for my family to get home. I usually hate to stop since using it is so enjoyable.
You will not regret buying this once you use it. If your like me, you may freak out about having spent this much while it is being delivered. But when you get it, use it for a good 30 minutes to an hour and you will be hooked.
I am going to be in Japan for about 1 year as soon as I am finished with my current classes; work is sending me. I now have no fears about the language barriers.
